Back to the drawing board.
Anthem made its debut in February 2019, developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts. However, it received criticisms once it launched, due to its limited content and the relative lack of regular updates. May's Anthem update blog post gives us an overview of what the studio has in plans for the title. They are going back to the drawing board to make sure certain aspects meet the initial expectations set out for the title.
BioWare Austin Studio Director, Christian, went over what the studio calls the "Anthem incubation" team. They are responsible for redesigning and reimagining aspects of the game that obviously need improvement over others. The development team acknowledged there are certain parts that need to get overhauled, and they are going back to experiment with prototypes
Incubation is a term we use internally – it essentially means we are going back and experimenting/prototyping to improve on the areas where we believe we fell short and to leverage everything that you love currently about Anthem.
Not only that, but the studio also plans to become more communicative with their player base for the upcoming period to discuss the changes they have planned for Anthem and the progress achieved so far. It will help BioWare's development team direct their efforts towards what the community wants.
In addition to taking players' feedback into consideration while shaping Anthem to what they want to play. The form of the updates is still undecided for sure, whether it is going to be a scheduled live stream or an infographic on the studio's socials for players to go through with all the information needed.
